Cool Meteorologist And Cute Cat.

The clip below is from a recent weather forecast on the German channel ARD.
Suddenly, in the middle of the forecast, a cat owned by one of the employees wandered into the studio. The popular TV-meteorologist, Jörg Kachelmann, kept his cool and picked the cat up without hesitation. He completed the forecast with the cat in his arms, without any apparent problems. He even finished by adding jokingly, that he hopes the cat has a heavy winter coat to endure the coming cold nights. The cat seemed to have utterly enjoyed the attention of the host and (quiet indifferently) those almost 2 minutes of fame.

I wish I could see it, as it sounds adorable! When I was at the homeless shelter Christmas Day, I was serving pumpkin pie and nearly tripped over a cat. They wander about the place, getting all loved and fed, and are used to (and enjoy, apparently) strangers picking them up. It seems they take in wayward animals there as well as people :)

How fun! I love cats.

That crazy studio cat! I liked how all of a sudden you saw his little tail pop up at the bottom on the screen.

Tschuss! (I couldn't do an umlaut)

Diane, cats love the affection of people, especially stray cats, as they depend on them to get food.
My first cat, which I had in the US, was a stray. His name was Gypsy. He was adorable. I miss him very much.

Diane, please, please, please get your video thingy fixed.;)) I am posting another "youtube" clip today and will so more in the future, as I have finally figured out how to link to them in the posts.;)))

Betsy, so do I.;)) I love their independence. They suit me as pets better than dogs, as I keep long work hours and I could not (and would not want to) leave a dog alone each day for over 10h.

Mel, yes that was great. I did not notice that until I have watched the clip a few times.;))
I love the way the cat totally enjoys being held.:)
Tschüss back at you.;)

I somehow "stumbled" upon this very same clip last night(you know how that goes when on the internet--one thing leads to another) and I sent it on to a few friends, including my parents who are cat lovers(and my mother, being German, could understand the weather man).
The newscaster impressed me with his warmth and acceptance towards the cat--whatta guy! So sweet...

Protege said...

Gal Friday; yes sometimes these things are everywhere.;)) I saw it on the weather forecast of our local news online and I loved it so much, I had to post it.
I agree with you, he really knew how to keep his cool and at the same time be so kind and loving.;)

Aww, that kitty is so CUTE! And the weatherman didn't miss a beat - I love it!

Protege said...

Hazel, I agree completely!;))

Donna said...

How cute! They both seem very much at ease.

Hilary said...

Aww what a cutie. The cat.. not the weather guy. ;)

Protege said...

Hilary, you do not think the weather man is cute? (LOL)
Could not agree with you more, on the cat, that is.;))
